2016 Mataro

"Crushed/destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented, 14 days on skins, matured in Italian-coopered French oak (50% new) for 9 months. Bright, clear crimson; from Turkey Flat's aged, dry grown vines, the fruit and tannins well able to stand up to the French oak. It's deceptively light-bodied, its length and persistence likewise. While it can be drunk now. 5+ years will see it bloom.

92 points."
